Webinar - Debunking SD-WAN Myths
By Paula Bernier, Executive Editor, TMC
The SD-WAN space is hot, and for good reason. It can offer businesses a more affordable and agile way to address the growing amount of traffic traversing their wide area network connections, more easily bring new branch locations into the fold, and provide better visibility into their networks and users.
Various sources indicate the SD-WAN space will reach $3.2 billion by 2018, $12.1 billion by 2019, and $7.5 billion by 2020. And David Hughes, CEO of Silver Peak (News - Alert), believes SD-WAN will reach a tipping point this year, at which time this technology will go mainstream.
But when a technology heats up like SD-WAN has, everybody and their brother scurries to jump on the bandwagon. That can open the door to a lot of outsized expectations and even some pretenders.
Masergy has stepped up to debunk some of this misinformation about SD-WAN so those with an interest in this important new technology can get a better understanding of what’s real and what it is. For example, Masergy wants to help businesses better understand what enterprise use cases make sense for SD-WAN, what key considerations IT professionals need to explore before adopting SD-WAN solutions, and how businesses can separate SD-WAN myths from reality. Masergy will convey this wisdom in its upcoming webinar “Shattering the Myths of SD-WAN”.
Attendees of this event will be alerted to the biggest three SD-WAN myths now in circulation. They also will learn about real-world enterprise networking SD-WAN use cases.
Paul Ruelas, director of network product management at Masergy, will be the presenter for the “Shattering the Myths of SD-WAN” webinar. I will be moderating.
“Hybrid networking and virtualized managed services, including new SD-WAN services, give businesses many new managed service options to create agile networks,” notes Ovum (News - Alert) analyst Mike Sapien. “Businesses should seek service providers that deliver an integrate, comprehensive suite of hybrid network solutions to achieve optimal price/performance.”
